I pre-ordered it but it didn't ship until Saturday. Should receive it this week sometime. I'll post a report once I get some time under my belt. :D

I just got done with MOHPA which was pretty good. Some annoying glitches but overall pretty solid.

Just got it installed today and it is sweet!! :D

Get into a firefight and the room fills with smoke & debris. Sort of like the part in Matrix when they blow the building to hell to save Morpheus. Not noticing the slight lag I did in the demo either. Only time it hiccups is the checkpoint saves.

From the little I've seen so far, I'm pretty excited to see the rest of it.

Beat it a couple weeks ago. Very cool game. Enemies get repetitive, but the storyline and atmosphere make it a solid game. The guns are pretty sweet, especially the penetrator. Shoots a giant nail and pins the enemies up to the wall by the body part you shoot them in. :D Thumbs up from me! Go with the harder difficulty settings though. Health/Armor was never an issue on Normal.

Haven't tried MP yet though. Been too busy. Hopefully will get to try it out soon.

NVidia released their forceware 84.21 drivers the other day. One of the fixes/optimisations is increased framerate in FEAR. See the release notes for details. ;)

Pretty cool game! Great graphics. If you liked the game, you'll enjoy this.

Hrmmm... just tried to replay this and kept getting errors. I uninstalled & reinstalled and got same errors, kernel32.dll.

Some links point to an MS Update:
http://www.neowin.net/forum/lofiversion ... 6-100.html
http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?kbid=917422

Others point to Kasperky A/V. Figures my E-trust A/V was expired so I installed AOL's free Active Shield (i.e. kaspersky) so I'm not sure which is actually causing this. Have any of you tried to play FEAR since the ms update in october and does it still work?
